Fairbanks man sentenced after 2013 assault with gun

Sentencing was held this afternoon for a Fairbanks man accused of assaulting and threatening 3-women with a loaded gun.

43-year-old Mike Mayotte as part of a plea deal received 180 days jail time for the assault that dated back to July 4th of last year.

The incident led to an hour-long standoff between police and Mayotte after he threatened the women with a loaded gun, discharging it close to their heads.

Today in Fairbanks Superior Court Mayotte's defense asked for community service in lieu of jail time however; the victims and Judge Jane Kauvar disagreed due to the serious nature of the offense.
